Understanding your results
Once your operation times have been calculated, you must analyze the results.
Remember, it is best to establish the baselines while there are no reports of any problems on the system to establish what is normal on your system. If users are reporting problems, you can compare the current timings against your baselines to see if the problem is real. If there is a material difference in the current timing, you must start analyzing performance on the system with monitoring tools such as PROMON, VSTs, OpenEdge Management, and operating system utilities.
